About the Product

The Chromalox IntelliTrace™ ITC series is designed for line or ambient sensing heat trace applications such as freeze protection and/or process temperature control. This controller may be used with constant wattage, mineral insulated or self regulating heating cables. The ITC is intended for use in industrial locations in either hazardous (Class I, Division 2) or non-hazardous environments.

The ITC Series is offered in either a single circuit or an independently controlled and monitored dual circuit platform. They provide a unique, industry-leading combination of heating capacity, application flexibility and technology.

The ITC is a microprocessor based system with SSR (Solid State Relay) power control which switches an impressive 40 Amps per circuit at 100-277 VAC.

There are three user-selectable control modes available on the ITC: Manual, Off or Auto. An output of 1% to 100% is available while in Manual Mode and you may choose either PID or ON/OFF control while in the Auto Control Mode.

You may employ one or two RTD sensors for either circuit. When using two RTD sensors, the ITC may be set to Low, High or Average. The ITC may also be configured as a 2-circuit ambient sensing controller that uses only one RTD to control both circuits. This provides the owner with much more flexibility and redundancy to help meet their ever-varying process demands.

The ITC employs a soft start feature that uses a proprietary software algorithm which eliminates the inherent self-regulating in-rush current, resulting in less nuisance tripping at cold temperatures. The soft start feature is selectable which allows this controller to be employed in non-heat trace applications as well.

All process conditions may be monitored and managed both locally and remotely. All process variable, communication and alarm settings and security codes are user-adjustable via simple page menu navigation.

In terms of system supervision, the ITC controller monitors temperature, current load and ground fault equipment protection leakage current (GFEP). Additionally, the alarms on the ITC consist of high and low temperature, high and low current, high GFEP current and sensor failure.

Should the ITC unit realize a failed sensor, the controller automatically switches into a user adjustable manual output duty cycle. To eliminate abrupt current spikes, the Chromalox ITC employs bump-less transfer power switching when switching over from either manual or auto mode.

The ITC unit is housed in a compact wall mountable, NEMA 4X FG or optional 316 SS enclosure and it features a high resolution TFT display, LED indication of Load, Power & Alarm status for each circuit and front panel capacitive touch user interface buttons which are mounted on a hinged door.

The ITC enclosure provides electrical connections for the heating cable, the AC Power and the RTD Sensors and it comes complete with stainless steel mounting brackets.
